Open Badges at eAssessment Scotland

‘Do open badges count’ is the central question to be explored in a seminar on accreditation in open education given by ALT’s Martin Hawksey at the eAssessment Scotland 2014 conference in September.

The seminar will examine the motivations behind badges and the effects of open badges, such as ‘situational awareness’ and Supporting Personal Knowledge Graphs (Siemens, 2014). Recently the Association for Learning Technology (ALT) has implemented a set of Mozilla Open Badges to accredit learning on its Open Course in Technology Enhanced Learning (ocTEL) by awarding weekly badges for various tasks including ‘checking-in’ and completing some predefined learning activities.

This seminar takes place during the eAssessment Scotland Day Conference on 5th September at the University of Dundee – see http://www.e-assessment-scotland.org/?page_id=2350#badges. eAssessment Scotland 2014 is also offering an online conference from 8th – 12th September http://www.e-assessment-scotland.org/?page_id=2342
